I just received in a GREAT deal a huge lot of Orcs and Goblins. I received the following:
~115 Night Goblins with Spears and Shields or Bows, several Fanatics, and a few netters, along with various command minis
21 Forest Goblin Spider Riders, Shields and Spears (BfSP)
15 Savage Orc Boar Riders, assorted weaponry
Night Goblin Boss (BfSP)
Night Goblin Shaman (BfSP)
Judging by the unit rundown on the server, it has yet to be updated to the newest book (8th?). I'm not much of a fantasy gamer, but I've got a nice amount of Dwarfs that I've painted up. I play Orks in 40k, so I have a healthy obsession with greenskins.
My questions is: is this a good starting point, and where should I go from here? I'm looking for an army that will help teach the basics of WFB with friends. I like the idea of war machines AND a Giant...
